These words you see here, falling off the page;
these thoughts, now tipping slowly into the abyss;
these stiff opinions, backbone of the piece,
look harmless now, but in the night they build
coarse boxes in my head, 
(excluding or including? -- you decide),
each box a judgment, constant commentary:
yes this, no that; you're in, he's out;
you're right, she's wrong;
you're not enough, it's not enough,
there's not enough, and never will be.
They're only words, and yet they have such power to divide...
